Sheltered housing is a term covering a wide range of rented housing for Older and/or Disabled or other vulnerable people. Sheltered housing most commonly refers to grouped housing such as a block or a 'scheme' of self contained flats and studio apartments which are linked to an emergency system. Some schemes also have Scheme Managers on site, who will manage the day to day running of the scheme.
Sheltered housing accommodation is distinct from a nursing home or care home in that the tenants are usually able to look after themselves, relatively independently.
